A couple weeks ago, Harrison Ford, who is seventy-one, broke his ankle when a door on the Millennium Falcon set fell on him. At first it was made to sound like no big deal, but over the last couple weeks, rumors have swirled as to the true extent of his injury—maybe he hurt his hip as well, or broke some ribs, or shattered into hundred thousand pieces like glass. Full Story

So you’ve heard about this Gary Oldman Playboy interview, right? Oldman’s defenders tried to make it sound like he was taken out of context. How could he be taken out of context when the magazine posted the transcript? Others are saying that Oldman was simply “illustrating the absurd by being absurd”. Full Story

Last night was the premiere of HBO’s The Leftovers in New York. Now you know if Jennifer Aniston hadn’t shown up to support fiancé Justin Theroux on this carpet, they would have given the tabloids a reason to announce a breakup. Not only did she show up, she came to sell. There was a lot of hands on chest and midsection. Full Story

So she tried to divorce him off her arm with makeup… Johnny Depp did the same, permanently, when he turned “Winona Forever” into “Wino Forever”. Full Story

A few weeks ago, I emailed Lainey to complain – I do this a lot (mostly about Leo and Aaron Paul). This time was no different. It’s summer. I miss Breaking Bad. I miss it A LOT. Lainey responded with “Orange is the New Black” and yes, it’s great, but it’s not the same, you know? A year after the series finale, and Walter White and Jesse Pinkman are pretty much kicking ass. Full Story

Just Jared posted some shots yesterday of Katie Holmes at the drug store studying a bottle of moisturiser. I decided not to buy them because the agency representing the photos is pretty expensive. It’s, ahem, the same agency that keeps getting shots of Blake Lively in out of the way places like, oh, in a small town in Utah at a bed and breakfast and pictures of her kissing Ryan Reynolds with the wedding ring on display after the wedding. Full Story

Check out Rihanna today in Paris to promote her fragrance. That’s a great top. And those are some badass leather slouchy pants. As you know, Rihanna was named the year’s Fashion Icon by the CFDA earlier this week. And to receive the honour, she wore almost nothing. It was interpreted a million ways: she’s an exhibitionist, she shouldn’t be showing so much, where is her modesty, this is tacky, she’s awesome, she looks amazing, she totally owned it, etc, etc, etc. Full Story

Late yesterday Warner Brothers announced that the Wachowski siblings’ new movie starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, Jupiter Ascending (aka Jackie and Potatohead Do Space), has been kicked from its sweet July 18 opening to February 6, 2015. It’s not surprising. When the tracking data was released for July movies it rated a dismal $18-22 million projection, against an estimated $150 million budget, which is probably a lot closer to $200 million in reality. Full Story

Beyonce is on the cover of T, The New York Times style magazine. The profile features a Beyonce photo shoot…but no Beyonce interview. So, she agreed to appear in the publication and, for one reason or another, decided not to speak. Instead the writer discusses the Beyonce phenomenon, Beyonce’s footprint on the music industry, on pop culture, on the universe. Full Story
